However, the Austrians themselves generally had little interest in the region (aside from a short-lived attempt by Emperor Charles VI (Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor) to compete with British and Dutch trade through the Ostend Company), and the fortresses along the border (the Barrier Fortresses (Barrier Treaty)) were, by treaty, garrisoned with Dutch troops. The area had, in fact, been given to Austria largely at British and Dutch insistence, as these powers feared potential French domination of the region. History Historically, French-speaking Belgium was never a single political entity until being unified under French rule during the French Revolution and Napoleonic rule. Prior to that, the region had never belonged to France.

Most small shops close at eight at the latest and roads which are busy, shopping thoroughfares by day can be almost deserted by 21:00. But don't despair; there are always the night markets!
